Hi guys. I can't access my email through any means for some reason, and it's only a particular email I use.

Be it through hotmail or the windows live messenger client itself. However, when logging into hotmail with another account, it worked. It only refuses to log into a particular account.

Specifically, I woke up today to check into email to find for some reason I was logged out. So trying to log back in, firefox just redirects me to the login page again! Meanwhile, Windows Live Messenger just tells me to troubleshoot.

I tried on both linux AND windows so I know it's not a virus hijacking anything.

In addition, for the sake of curiosity, I tried resetting my password only for it to tell me the service is temporarily unavailable. However, I had just reset my password to another email!

My firefox addons are Ghostery, Web of Trust, NoScript, and Adblock+, all of which are reputable.

Does anyone have any information about why it wont let me log into the particular email? Is anyone else having problems, or are others able to log in fine and it's just me?

Thanks!

There is a technical problem with hotmail, skydrive, outlook, and other Microsoft services.

You should have switched to Gmail a long time ago.

Seems I can access my account again. Thanks for linking that! :)

However, why should I switch to gmail? I'll admit I'm sort of a hipster, so educate me.
